Actor Tom Cruise doesn't even have a script for his upcoming history-making film to be shot in space, but managed to convince Universal Pictures to shell out $200 million to produce it.

Deadline uncovered in early May possibly that Cruise was doing the job on the space-established motion-adventure and that he was really serious about executing it and that Musk was involved.

The Tom Crise starrer movie Edge Of Tomorrow released in the theaters back in 2014. This is a real risk that Universal is a spending this much. Plus, consider the fact that the budgets in the list of the 30 most-expensive movies begins at $US220 million - and hey, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides cost Disney a ridiculous $US376.5 million to make.

Cruise's Mission Impossible 5, 6, 7 and 8 director McQuarrie, Deadline says, " will have a ground control role as story advisor and producer".

Eccentric SpaceX owner Elon Musk has insisted space travel will eventually widely be something that can be enjoyed commercially. Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken undocked from the Space Station at 7:34pm EDT and are now on their return back to Earth.

Executives of the renowned studio approved of this stunning deal in a Zoom call meeting with Cruise, director Doug Liman, PJ van Sandwijk, and Christopher McQuarrie.

We don't know the extent of Musk's partnership, but kicking in some free flights to the ISS aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon in exchange for a stake or just some epic product placement could save the production millions.

The 200m funding is a quote that, considering no movie has ever been produced beyond Earth prior to, is filled with probably the best factors any film project has had. Now slowly, everything is getting back to normal because of the uplifting of lockdown, so the shot of the movies also resumed. The two of them have practically been joined at the hip, with McQuarried either directing, producing, or writing a draft of the screenplay for almost every Cruise movie since 2008's Valkyrie. Because of the Pandemic, the shooting stopped. For the action scene, they are choosing to blow up a bridge that was built up in 1909 and decommissioned since 2016.
